Should be noted that RAM can be run at lower than advertised speeds. It's not an all or nothing proposal. So if you wanted to run this at...

Leadtek is still alive? Haven't seen their cards in Australia for years. My first ever graphics cards was a Leadtek WinFast A380 Ultra.

Usually I hate PNY designs. This actually looks pretty good. Not read any reviews on its actual performance but it's better looking then...

Think something like the FiiO BTR5 is a more versatile and better product at a cheaper price.

Bit of weird question. So an ATX motherboard (like this motherboard) will fit in any ATX compatible cases. When buying a case you want to...

Strictly speaking yes. But I think what he means is that it is plug and play with Windows. Windows 10 will automatically find and install...

Should be noted that a lot of popular DACs will be out of stock for a while soon. AKM had a factory fire that has wiped out all production...

Cooler uses non standard fan clips. Don't know if you can actually replace the fans, maybe standard fan clips work but haven't seen anyone...

I really dislike the aesthetic design of this cooler. But at this price the price/performance ratio makes it such a great bargain.

Quick Sync. It's a good technology which definitely has niche use cases. I think it's pretty heavily used in Plex servers. But assuming...

Intel and Nvidia nearly always have launch issues. Just refer to the massive amounts of coverage of RTX 3000 crash to desktop reports. We...

People will make 5600x comments because the 5600x is the better overall CPU. Gaming performance is the same, workstation performance is...

My issue mainly is that it's not a $1100 bat. All these importers of Indian domestic market bats just make up those prices to make it seem...

They still have some really good headphones and amps at reasonable prices. HD6XX is still one of the best headphones you can get at that...

People who don't have $1000+ to spend on a GPU. That's pretty simple. You need to weigh up desired resolution, budget, and the cost per...

Good deal for $55. It's now up against much smaller coolers like the Hyper 212. So you should be able to reduce the fan RPM to bring it...

That's an older year model so it should be cheaper realistically (edit: Nope it's just a bad photo). Both the one you linked and the one...

Deal for a Intel i9-10850K, a slightly cheaper alternative to the 10900K for those looking at that CPU. Performs pretty much identically to...

Agreed. You can get faster RAM for the same price. Plenty of 3000 - 3200 mhz options for about $95 at the moment. RAM prices have dropped...
